Odysseus & Cyclops

Odysseus was coming back from war when he and his men came acrross an island. So Odysseus and 12 of his men went on the island. They found an abandoned cave with food. The crew was gathering the food and livestock that was also inside then Odysseus said to wait for the owner to return. When the owner returned he was not a mortal he was a cyclops, Polyphemus. Polyphemus trapped the men in the cave with a large rock, and ate two of the men.

That night, Odysseus offered Polyphemus a glass of wine, Polyphemus drank the wine and fell asleep. When he was asleep Odysseus took a sharp stick and jabbed it into his eye blinding him. The next morning, Polyphemus was letting the sheep out to graze and while the sheep were exiting he felt the top of the sheeps to make sure no one was getting out. The men tied themselves to the bottoms of the sheep and escaped. When Polyphemus found out he threw a boulder at the ship and had a meltdown.
